----- stuff snipped -----
A disgruntled local employee could do the same thing.
What makes a local employee more trustworthy than an offshore worker?

The local employee is not inherently more trustworthy than an offshore
contractor.

However, the local employee is subject to the laws of the country in which
the company operates.  In the United States extortion is not treated lightly
and the employee would likely have been visited by the police or federal
authorities and could probably count on spending some time behind bars.
It's likely that the local employee would be at least somewhat aware of the
consequences of such an action.  Depending on the laws of his country and
existing agreements between his country and the company's country, the
offshore contractor may have nothing to fear.

My opinions only, of course.

Regards,
Gene
